Jim Baxter a short story by Tom Miller

Not many would argue against the claim that JIM BAXTER was probably the most naturally gifted footballer Scotland has ever produced. When he left Raith Rovers for Rangers he found the perfect platform for his talents. Scot Symon was the man that brought him to Ibrox and effectively built his team around him. In an era where tactics were pretty much non existent the Rangers manager`s final instruction to his team as they were about to take the field was ` just get the ball to Jim!`

His record in Old Firm games was remarkable & in his own inimitable gallus style, Jim himself often claimed the wives of Celtic fans used to write to him to thank him for sending their husbands home early!
